OMG these are hilarious!!

You know, I remember when "humongous" was added to the dictionary! The early 1980s smile

I have a word to contribute: Fraculated - scrambled beyond repair.

And sometimes I feel that way wink

I first heard it in the movie "Mystery Men," and there was a machine that could scramble atoms and molecules. It was called "The Fraculator." One of the characters was worried about being scrambled beyond repair, or "Fraculated."

This word has made its way into the Urban dictionary LOL!!

In North Wales there's a phrase that describes someone who goes on and on before getting to the point. It translates as "been all the way around Anglesey". Anglesey is a large island & county off the coast of Caernarfonshire.

Yes Mona!. I love Wales, visited a couple of times. It's a beautiful part of the world.

A saying in Yorkshire where I was born and raised was similar..."going all around the houses!" lol

Fraculated! Love it. Despite the wonderful diversity of the English language, there are still situations and feelings and descriptions that somehow - amazingly! - there isn't a word for it. Fraculated fills a gap. I suppose fubar is similar, but not quite as evocative.

How about jejune? It always looks to me like such a fun word, but means dull or insipid. (Apparently other means are childish, or uninformed.)
